The Mission: Share advice and inspiration to get girls and women inspired to embrace wellness and adventure!
Hey everyone! I’m Molly Hurford, author, coach and lover of all things outdoors. Cycling and running are my passions, writing is my life, and luckily, I’ve found an amazing way to combine the two. In addition to running The Outdoor Edit and writing for other magazines, I’m the author of Saddle, Sore: Ride Comfortable, Ride Happy, Mud, Snow and Cyclocross (Deeds Publishing) and Fuel Your Ride (Rodale Press). My partner in life and crime Peter Glassford and I also co-host a podcast, The Consummate Athlete.
I’m a writer-at-large with Bicycling magazine, and I also do frequent work with RootsRated about adventure travel, Map My Fitness about running, and with Nylon about fitness and fashion. I also blog on here about active travel, fashion and lifestyle.
…And I’m a certified USA Cycling coach and Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified , so we travel the country giving talks and hosting clinics about riding, racing, training, nutrition and women’s issues.
I’d love to hear from you about any fun adventure stories or tips you have, or any articles you’d love to see.
For brands interested in collaborating, email molly [at] theoutdooredit.com and let’s chat!
More about me:
I’m a certified USA Cycling coach, and we travel the country giving talks and clinics about riding, racing, training, nutrition and women’s issues. I’m the team manager for Aspire Racing, so we’re traveling to cyclocross races around the world… all while writing, writing and writing!
Before coming on with Bicycling as a ‘writer at large,’ I was an editor at Cyclocross Magazine, for three years where I wrote, edited, and managed the print and online magazines. Additionally, I wrote freelance articles for both cycling/athletic publications including Triathlete, Bicycling and Dirt Rag, as well as women’s publications.
